Grybauskaite expected to receive Min of Foreign Affairs’ letter of resignation on 20 Jan
Today, the Lithuanian commercial TV station LNK claimed that Lithuania’s Foreign Minister’s resignation letter will land on the President Grybauskaite’s desk tomorrow, 20 January.
According to the report, the Prime Minister Andrius Kubulius who is scheduled to meet the President tomorrow will bring the letter. Presidential Spokesperson Linas Balsys said to BNS, “In response to the prime minister’s request, the president will meet him to discuss the political situation in the country, the ruling coalition’s issue and the issue of Foreign Minister Vygaudas Usackas”.
The Prime Minister said to the Public Radio today that Usackas should work harder to regain the President’s trust. He said, “Any minister has to have both the president’s and the prime minister’s trust. If this trust is lacking – speaking of the president’s trust with regards to specific ministers – we all are certainly prepared to spare no effort to restore this trust, and this should first of all be the responsibility of the minister.”
